Politico: 97% of Left Leaning Voters Want Climate Action

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

My question – if 97% of left leaning voters want climate action, are they waiting for right wing voters to pay for it?

The world is on fire and our leaders are failing, poll finds

Poll respondents voice frustration at being left to take on climate action on their own after governments and companies fail to act.

Adults across the United States and globally have damning opinions about the performance of their political leaders when it comes to climate change, and say they are noticing an escalation in extreme weather events and natural disasters.

A new POLITICO Morning Consult Global Sustainability Poll reveals frustration from citizens that they are being left to take on climate action on their own, when they believe governments and the companies with the most resources (which also tend to bear the most responsibility for carbon emissions) should shoulder the burden.

Surprisingly, climate may be the only issue where President Joe Biden is getting higher marks from the right than from the left. That’s not necessarily because Republican voters are concerned that Biden is doing enough, but because they’re satisfied that he is legislatively constrained.

Biden’s base, meanwhile, is furious. Though the administration has made climate action a centerpiece of its rhetoric, executive action and legislative agenda, 80 percent of Americans who labeled themselves left-leaning said that the Biden administration is doing too little to address climate change, including 64 percent of Democrats surveyed.

The United States is home to the largest ideological divide on climate action. Among Americans, 97 percent of left-leaning voters expressed concern about climate change, compared to 51 percent of right-leaning voters.

Politico is saying 97% of left leaning voters think climate change is a problem.

If I thought we were in the midst of an existential crisis, and I knew lots of people thought the same, I wouldn’t be sitting on my butt waiting for President Biden to take action, or waiting for absolutely everyone to agree there is a problem. I would be out there fundraising in Democrat and Green Party branch meetings, or anyone else who would listen, to gather the money needed, to build wind turbines and solar panels or whatever other infrastructure is required to solve the problem.

But for some reason this isn’t happening. Or if it is happening, the money being raised is not enough to make an impact.

Are left wing voters more concerned about ensuring everyone pays their fair share, than saving the world?

Or do they say they are worried about climate change, but don’t really mean it?

I’d love to know the answer. If you are a climate concerned left wing voter, please make an effort to explain what is preventing the vast number of left wing voters who think climate change is a pressing issue, from getting off their butts and sorting the problem out amongst themselves.

Because we’re talking about around half the country, if the Politico survey is any guide.

Surely that many people between them have enough resources and initiative to at least make a start, to lead everyone else by example.

If half the nation swings center to left then half swings center to right.
If 97% of the Center to Left believe there is a problem then no government action would be required.
Fully 48% of the population would be personally acting to eliminate THEIR use of fossil energy and divest themselves of petrochemical derived goods.
They would trade in (no trade in value)JUNK their brand new ICE Lexus or Mercedes or Lamborghini for an all electric Prius or Leaf or even Tesla.
They would install Solar on their rooftops with wall mounted battery back-up and immediately sever from Grid Sourced electricity.
They would throw out their new gas appliances and install all electric heating and cooking.
They would cease using any and all petrochemical derived goods like…
Rubber Car Tires
Plastic insulated wiring
Plastic products
…Keyboards
…Cell Phones
…Wind Turbine Blades
Synthetic Clothing like
…Almost everything sold by North Face
…Nylons
…Gloves
…Jackets
Structural Steel (requires Coking Coal to purify the iron) reinforced products like
…Wind Turbines
…high rise buildings
…Auto Frames
AND let’s not forget Make-up, Lipstick and Ink either
Or the other more than 6000 products dependent on Petrochemicals
Of course Coal also has to go spoooo…No Solar Panels either

If 48% of the population simply stopped using gasoline, natural gas and propane the price of the commodities would plummet making extraction unaffordable. (SHHHH)

But isn’t that always the case with modern Progressivism? It’s always up to someone else to do the real work, and to pay for it.

One of the first things you (should) learn when studying economics: What people say they think is next to utterly meaningless. It’s what they do with their own money that expresses their real opinion. When measured that way, what they’re saying is that they’re for consumerism as usual.

I have no doubt that many if not most of the left are “concerned” about climate change. But only as long as they don’t have to make any meaningful sacrifice themselves.

That is one thing I have noticed regarding leftists. They see lots of problems in the world. But they aren’t willing to do anything themselves, or to make any personal sacrifices to solve any of these problems. They honestly seem to believe that voting for a politician who promises to force someone else to something about the problem is all they need to do.

Since everything seems to revolve around the number 97 I decided to look up what it meant in numerology.

Number 97 is a number of introspection and tolerance. It actively affects the welfare of humanity.

The energy the number 97 represents resonates with a kinship for humanity. It is compassionate and perceptive. Its inner wisdom is consulted to analyze problems and find viable solutions.

97 constantly acquires knowledge of and about itself and its relationship to humanity. It is perpetually accumulating wisdom — not only about itself and humanity, but also about individuals, and about the physical and spiritual universes.

97 generally prefers discussions related to literary or scientific subjects that have the potential to affect humanity.

97 tends to be tolerant rather than confrontational, compassionate rather than self-centered, and philanthropic rather than greedy.

Yep, I’m pretty sure that’s just how they see themselves.

It is Politico.
When the left runs out of other people’s money (OPM, and they have but AOC doesn’t know that yet—or much else) the nonsense will sort of stop. The momentum, not the AOC screeching. What will help that along is a good ruinables caused big blackout or two. Plus some more global cooling caused by Arctic warming, per most recent ‘research’.

I was noodling another ‘bullet point’ ridicule post:

  1. Warmunists now admit CMIP6 runs too hot after their ‘cloud fix’.
  2. Sea level rise is not accelerating unless imprecisely measured by SatAlt.
  3. Arctic summer sea ice has NOT disappeared as predicted.
  4. Polar bears are thriving since they do NOT depend on summer sea ice.
  5. Ocean is not acidifying since buffered.
  6. Pacific Island areal extent is growing, not shrinking.

And ridicule their GND solutions:

  1. Chop down the 1000 year old ‘Grimeswald’ in Germany for wind turbines.
  2. Diesel more fuel efficient than gasoline, ignoring PM2.5. Oops.
  3. Ruinables are intermittent, so beg UK to let home mains shut off if needed.
  4. Go EV, when the grid cannot supply enough electricity and the world cannot supply enough key battery minerals.

Or the Chinese increasing coal use? And construction of coal fired electricity plants at home and around the world?

The quoted conclusions have all the earmarks of coming from a “push poll”.
(E.g. – “Would you rather pay for Climate Action yourself or would you prefer the government funding?“)

Donuts to Dollars (remember when the values were the other way ’round?) they never asked if the respondents if Climate Action was necessary, (and if so how would they rank the issue on their current items of concern).

Nah, I think it’s because he’s done nothjing to harm the environment due to failing mental faculties and general incomeptence. Aside from his (usually plagiarised) claims, can anyone name anything he has accomplished in almost 50 years on the public teat?

As for the 97% of the left waiting for the right to pay, that’s only logical because it’s the right that have the jobs and pay the taxes. And the left can’t use the taxes because they need that for boondoggles, pork barrels, bribery and backhanders to their masters.

So the lefty responders (and it’s politico so you KNOW they aren’t polling actual conservative, just those slightly to the right of the rabid mob) figure they can double-dip into conservative pockets and the virtue signallers will not have to pay anything to get their agenda.

Using the same information I take a different view. It is true that the vast majority on the left aren’t happy with our progress addressing catastrophic anthropogenic global warming. I agree with them we haven’t changed the average global temperature one little bit. But it is not for a lack of trying. I can’t even imagine how much money has been squandered chasing after a fraction of a degree cooler temperature. Add up the subsidies given to green companies, the tax relief to green companies, the tax relief to citizens, the regulations constraining fossil fuels and nuclear, the added cost for fossil fuel and nuclear to be on stand by for unreliable wind and solar and on and on. The clear result is less fossil fuel and nuclear, higher energy prices, higher prices in general and a whole lot of wasted money only to slide backwards. The position we are in now doesn’t prove we haven’t done enough, it shows that no matter how much more we spend or regulate, we can not accomplish their agenda. Not ever.

Individual thinking and actions are not their cup of tea, which is why they always talk about “consensus”, “community” and “democracy”. Each and every one of these ideas requires identical thinking.

And they truly believe that more government programs whose workers place checkmarks on agenda items decided in management meetings will bring utopia. This time. For sure.

Griff should go back to the future:
(An) article in the Maitland Mercury explained that ‘great changes have taken place in the climate of Australia’, citing ‘heavy rains’ and ‘deluging floods’ and noted, “The aborigines say that the climate has undergone this change since the white man came in the country”. The article was dated 11 March 1846.
“A considerable change of climate, inexplicable at present to us, must have taken place in the polar regions ….the Greenland Seas…have hitherto covered (in ice), have in the last two years entirely disappeared.” That was the President of the Royal Society – in 1817.
The Brisbane Courier of 10 January 1871: “Every season is sure to be ‘extraordinary’ almost every month one of the driest, or windiest, coldest or hottest ever known …THREE consecutive years of drought…Others speculating quite as conjecturally and even more absurdly, seem to attribute the impending change of climate – of which they assume the reality – to the operation of men.”

The best way to confront climate change is to adapt to it. Our family adapted by moving to a warmer climate.

Are the 97% those who are freezing their balls off in the Northern Hemisphere at present?
I am sure they would prefer it to be a bit warmer??

I certainly would. My heating bills are killing me. Thanks Brandon.

You can always tell a push-poll. But you can’t tell it much.
For starters, the basic assumption of the poll, that “action must be taken on climate change” is completely bogus. Alarmunists need to have popular support for their ideology. And viola (cellists need not apply), the poll “found” what the pollsters wanted.

Yes, and I want the inflation to target them as opposed to sharing the pain.

I thought the answer to the meaning of life, the universe, and everything was 42, but apparently it is always 97?

Want action? There has been a massive amount of action. None of it good. So, now “it’s time we do ‘something'”? Stop letting them imply that nothing has been done. Plenty has. Enough to demonstrate that it won’t work.

97% of Left Leaning Voters Want Climate Action

“Like a circle in a spiral, like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning on an ever spinning reel
As the images unwind, like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind!”

No warming for 7 years, so hardly a crisis. I think I can wait to take action.

When I believed in Catastrophic Anthropogenic Climate Change, I rode a bicycle year-round. I biked through the bitter, freezing cold and under the hot, blazing sun. I will hold alarmists to the same standard.

At least 97% of progressives are neurotic frauds.
